    I have a player who constantly asks to be on my "Matey's List". I decline every time, and the player keeps asking non-stop. My list is full and I don't want them. But most importantly: they can see when I am online by doing this, even if I don't accept them<--(and I am certain of this fact; that is why the player keeps doing it). What can I do?

    He said he was getting Matey's List requests, not Group Invites. Or are you saying that both are controlled by this one setting?

    Ahoy,

    There is nothing you can do in this circumstance, you cannot prevent a player adding you to the Mateys List. I would also like to point out that the player can see if you are online or not without requesting you in the Mateys List; simply searching for your Username/ID can give this information in both the Mateys Search and the Spy.

    Bawdyn, that setting only stops group invitations not the Mateys List.

    Yes...I know the Spy finds me, but this way is easier for other players to employ and more deceitful. And Arky is right; I already had checked "Block group invitations" to no avail.

    All a player need do with out using the spy function is to type /users in chat and a user list will pop up, so there is not a way to stop players from knowing you are online.

    This is true, but it's hard to see a boat name when 50 names pop-up (and in a jumble) in Global Chat. The bad side of this problem is that a player can **gain more information about your boat** by doing this (i.e., your Level). I know the Developers are busy, but a blocking method (like the one for group invitations) would be nice. In fact, if you load your Mateys List until you get to the Maximum number allowed and get the pop-up window telling you the "Max is Reached", other players can **still** use this technique! Not just to see you online, but to learn more information about your boat. In all due respect, it is broken. Thanks for all who commented, and to our Mod....you can close. P.S. Maybe you can pass this on?
